Ok, this one hit home for me and I’m posting it as a personal reminder. If you don’t follow Seth Godin’s blog, as a leader, manager, or marketer… you should. Here’s a recent post:
“It doesn’t have to be a wise decision or a perfect one. Just make one.
In fact, make several. Make more decisions could be your three word mantra.
No decision is a decision as well, the decision not to decide. Not deciding is usually the wrong decision. If you are the go-to person, the one who can decide, you’ll make more of a difference. It doesn’t matter so much that you’re right, it matters that you decided.
Of course it’s risky and painful. That’s why it’s a rare and valuable skill.”
